The Great Stagnation
Society's laws and expectations have stagnated. Nobody really considers what the future should hold. There's a couple of science fictions that consider the future but culture and society in the west is stagnated
Laws are predominantly made to control the poor and the masses. Surveillance is on the rise. Society is ran for capital and landowners and not the poor or the general population.
As a result society is stagnated. Technology is only considered if it benefits the hegemony or incumbents. Good ideas are ignored.
